With a damning OECD report earlier this month only adding to the feeling that technology's place in the classroom should never be taken for granted, HP and Westcoast sat down in our studio to discuss the findings of the 2015 CRN Education Report.
Register to tune into this webseminar to hear a frank discussion of how technology suppliers should be making the case for IT amid growing questions over its ability to help teaching and learning outcomes.
CRN managing editor Doug Woodburn, Westcoast's Phil Bell and HP's Kennie Fife will also chat through the key findings of the 2015 Education Report, which can be downloaded free of charge here.
- Education IT budgets are rising, if very slowly
- Tablets remain the most-sought after technology, with two-thirds of purchasing decision makers planning to invest this year
- According to Freedom of Information research of over 70 universities, higher-education IT spending rose 11.55 per cent in 2014
Also being discussed during this webseminar will be:
- How suppliers should make the case for technology in schools after an OECD report concluded IT in the classroom is having no beneficial impact on results
- What changes to the IT curriculum and impending boom in free schools will mean for VARs supplying the education sector
